Perth Amboy Catholic Schools are a great community for parents who want their children to be educated by teachers who see them as individuals instead of a number. The principal is very much involved in the lives of the parents as well as the students. The staff is warm, inviting and more than all they care about your childs education. The schools academic program emphasizes on grammar, reading and math skills at an age where most schools are still teaching their students the ABC's.

Working within the educational system gives me experience when choosing a school for my own children. I chose PACS because of the wonderful enviornment given by all those that come in contact with my child. When she is sick she has to be forced not to go to school. She loves Sister Beverly and all of her teachers. Five starts.

The academic program is one of the best in the area. In addition, parental involvement is very accepted.

My son is currently enrolled in PACS Primary in K4 and I believe this school is wonderful. My son has learned so much. I always receive samples of his school work and have no problem contacting his teacher with any concerns. Even though he is only in K4, the curriculum has been very impressive. Sister Beverly and staff are always helpful and encourage their students. I feel that PACS tries to involve parents in all activities and have a tremendous turn out. My son will definitely be graduating from PACS.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
